Challenge 260 Theme 

'Anything Goes with WINGS'

Ahhh, wings, so many choices and for me it is always fairies or butterflies :)  This fortnight I have used a Coosty Creations set -  Tamani Digital Stamp and Paper Pack.  I fancied a challenge so thought I would use all four papers that come with this digital stamp :)

I first used one of the papers to create the base mat for my card.  Next I added some lace and used two more of the papers to create border strips one of which I also die cut with a lacy border.  Next I printed the green paper and used it to make my contrasting mat behind the image and also for the base of my ribbon border.  Onto a bit of digital work, one of the papers was used and I then placed the .png version of the file on top of it and printed this twice.  I wanted to try to make the wings appear transparent so first covered them with transparent texture paste, then sprayed them with gold glitter varnish.  Ummm, not quite what I wanted so I then used Ice Stickles and painted them with that and finished off by using gold Stickles for the veins.  Rather pleased with the outcome as they really do look fragile and transparent, just as I imagine fairy wings should be.  On the second printout of the image I coloured the fairy with Promarkers and Polychromos and then fussy cut her out and mounted her in the correct position with foam tape so it appears the wings are truly behind her.  To finish off I made the sentiment and coloured three flower brads with my dark green Promarker and added gold Stickles to them.  All done and I am rather chuffed with how this card has turned out, think I will send it to my Mum as she has fairies at the bottom of her garden :) :) :)
